Join Stephen Hawking for his Time Travellers' Reception with the invitation that the Professor hopes "will be around for many thousands of years". Be part of a real time travel experiment with this poster created by artist Peter Dean in collaboration with world-renowned physicist, Stephen Hawking.
This is an ingenious experiment, devised by Professor Stephen Hawking, to prove whether time travel to the past is possible. By holding a reception for time travellers and not publicising it until after it happened, the professor hopes that future time travellers will one day see it and journey back to attend. The success of this experiment depends entirely on the invitation poster existing in the future for time travellers to find it.
This stunning screen-printed poster is available in two colours, smoke (grey) and bright citrine (yellow/orange). It has been created from a high resolution scan of a letterpress-printed version, to maintain the same Victorian style and steampunk feel as the limited edition prints proudly displayed in Stephen Hawking’s home and office.
As seen on TV! This print featured on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
Screen print, in either white or black ink.
The overall dimensions of the print are 14" x 18" (35.6cm x 45.7cm).
The poster is printed on 135gsm Colorplan paper (either "Smoke" or "Citrine") with a plain finish.

Prints are framed professionally, to order, by a Guild Commended Framer using archival-quality materials and usually ship within 7 working days.
Frames are available in either a black or white finish and are sealed on the back to prevent dust from entering. D-ring attachments and hanging cord are also fitted, so the print will arrive ready to hang. A card is also attached to the rear of the frame containing information about the print and Professor Hawking's experiment.
High-quality acrylic is used in place of glass for all shipped orders. It is visibly identical, but should not be cleaned or polished with abrasives.
The price includes shipping, so no additional charge will be added at checkout. We package framed prints carefully to protect them from damage during shipping. Framed prints are shipped via Parcelforce.
The overall dimensions of the frame are: Width = 390mm, Height = 496mm, Depth = 25mm. The frame itself is 22mm wide all around.
For a limited time, shipping to all destinations is free.
We take great care with packaging to help ensure that your print reaches you in excellent condition. Prints are wrapped in acid-free tissue paper and shipped in large-diameter, thick-walled tubes with secured end caps.
